Wesley's Notes for Luke 23:40


23:40 The other rebuked him - What a surprising degree was here of repentance, faith, and other graces! And what abundance of good works, in his public confession of his sin, reproof of his fellow criminal, his honourable testimony to Christ, and profession of faith in him, while he was in so disgraceful circumstances as were stumbling even to his disciples! This shows the power of Divine grace. But it encourages none to put off their repentance to the last hour; since, as far as appears, this was the first time this criminal had an opportunity of knowing any thing of Christ, and his conversion was designed to put a peculiar glory on our Saviour in his lowest state, while his enemies derided him, and his own disciples either denied or forsook him.


People's Bible Notes for Luke 23:40


Lu 23:40,41 Seeing thou art in the same condemnation. For sedition and rebellion; the one probably of which Barabbas was leader. Christ was condemned as a seditious person, but the malefactor knew that he had no part. He "had done nothing amiss".

    "For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?" When Jesus warned His enemies that their hatred and hostility that they were spreading among the people was blasphemy of the Spirit that would never be forgiven; or when they stirred up the crowds to violence and demanding Jesus' crucifixion; did any of them feel sorry or change their wicked minds in the centuries since?
